I agree with that sentiment; however, ties are also dumb.

It wasn't so bad in hockey because it is easier to score and the average team would probably tie 10 games a season, but in soccer it is so difficult to score and waaaaay too many games end in a tie, often times a 0-0 tie.

Americans will never understand/be able to accept a game that lasts 95 minutes and ends without anyone scoring a single goal.
